“MARCH 1, 2019,—Underground rapper MF Grimm, together with Day By Day Entertainment and Vendetta Vinyl, announced today the release of the artist’s latest album, American Hunger: Rebirth Vol. 2 Trials, Tribulations, Humiliation and Elevation. The 11-track album, produced by Drasar Monumental, will be available worldwide across all major streaming platforms, beginning March 15. Once a date on the Roman calendar known for settling debts, ‘The Ides of March’ became synonymous with the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. The Ides plays a recurring thematic throughout the album whose first single, Still My Love, is available now.
American Hunger: Rebirth Vol. 2 features digitally re-mastered vocals from MF Grimm’s 2006 release, American Hunger. The first triple-album in hip-hop history, American Hunger was highly lauded by fans and media alike.
“Most of us recognize the Ides of March for one of history’s most nefarious assassinations. What really resonated with me is that the crime was committed by someone close to Caesar, but still his legacy lives on,” said MF Grimm. “I know firsthand how trials and betrayals can take you down. But, these experiences led to the creation of this album – giving more depth to one of the greatest works of my life. This one is more personal, self-reflective and introspective.”
A New York native, MF Grimm has contributed to the hip-hop industry for more than 30 years as a rapper, producer and label executive. As an artist, he has released five solo albums, five collaborative albums and two compilation albums. MF Grimm has continued to create despite being paralyzed from the waist-down, the result of a shooting in 1994.
MF Grimm previously partnered with Drasar Monumental on a three-part conceptual series of albums including Good Morning Vietnam (2012), Good Morning Vietnam 2: The Golden Triangle (2013) and Good Morning Vietnam 3: The Phoenix Program. The EPs were released under Vendetta Vinyl & Day By Day Entertainment.
In addition to digital, fans may purchase the single Still My Love on 7-inch at VendettaVinylVietnam.com. Other American Hunger: Rebirth Vol. 2 tracks include Fuck You, American Hunger (?), Streets, Give, Right There, Page Six, The Whole World, Children of Abel, Simple Rhyme and Lift Me Up.
The album’s artwork was designed by Scotch79th”.

LORD HAVE MERCY !!!!!
DJ IQ (HANDROIDZ) recently uploaded this session of him and Q-BERT going berserker mode for 49:00 minutes straight…If your tired of hearing all these lazy DJ’s with no hands, go grab some popcorn, tilt your chair back, turn your phone off and catch a motherfucking zone if you know what’s best for you..
DO NOT SLEEP ……
ILL CONSCIOUS THE GOD brings the drama on his newest offering, “Heavyweight Rhyme Writers” with production by STREET WYZE…Nuff respect to the entire Bodymore..
Be on the lookout for the “Parimore” EP with ILL Conscious, Dirt Platoon and Guy Grams on February 27th..
I’m going to transport you back to 2004 for a session with the the almighty P-BROTHERS in the mix on Radio One Xtra – The Basement…Over an hour of explosive material on deck so don’t sleep !!!
*The duo kick things off at the 25 minute mark..
In the Hip Hop world you have EVIL E, EVIL D, and in London you have producer EVIL ED who recently dropped the “Evil Ed Remixes” which has a few burners on it..
HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD TOP PICKS “Film Noir” which has a very evil bass line, so make sure you rock it on a decent system, “Fedoraz” & “Dropping Mics”…
This kid Eto has been around for a minute, but he is really starting to heat up..On “Holy Wine” he get’s busy over a menacing MUGGS backdrop that has me eagerly waiting for their full length “Hell’s Roof” due out next month..
Hip Hop cats are probably the most opinionated and passionate types on this entire planet..Try dissing E40 in the Bay area and you might have to physically defend yourself..If you attempt to discredit J Prince in certain parts of Houston I can almost guarantee you that their will be a problem on your hands…Speak badly about Luke Skywalker in Miami and you just might catch a bad one..Go ahead and diss Mac Dre in Vallejo and watch what happens…
Your somewhat free to say whatever the fuck you want in this world, but you better be built to deal with the repercussions when someone steps to you regarding your opinions, speech and behavior..
Thats why I commend those dudes over at SUPER DUTY TOUGH WORK on this recent episode where they speak their true opinion regardless of how motherfuckers feel about it, but for the sake of keeping it thorough they made a few mistakes…
1..TUPAC’S first album wasn’t called NIGGAZ 4 LIFE- it was “STRICTLY 4 MY NIGGAZ”..
2..THE BIGGIE collab with METHOD MAN was “The What”, not “DWYCK”…
3..Even though the Beat Nuts weren’t the most lyrical duo, I still think they made great albums…
There were a couple other missteps, but for the most part I agree with 85 % of the shit they said, and give them credit for not dancing around the topic (Rappers Were Supposed To Like But Don’t)….
Never heard of this cat ALIANO, but I recently heard FRED ONES cutting this shit up to shreds on a recent Guerrilla Grooves show which made me do a little investigating…”Hysteria” is perfect for mixtape burn or a little power boost..
Produced by SAMPLE KUBRICK..
*Every once in awhile I have to repost certain joints that I feel don’t get enough burn…Originally posted March 24, 2018..
I just listened to this brand spanking new album by VITAMIN D “Bornday 3”, and I gotta admit, their are some motherfucking heaters on here…Maybe its the pacific northwest isolation factor that has enabled Vitamin to cultivate a truly original approach to the artform?….Maybe its the fact that he makes beats, rhymes, and engineers his own shit?…Or maybe you can attribute it to his unyielding dedication to Hip Hop for over 20 years?….
Regardless do yourself a favor and check in with a quickness, but I recommend rocking it in its entirety, please disregard any of the singing that takes place….HAHAHAHA….
HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD TOP PICKS- “The New Central”, “All That Jazz – this is incredible”, “Mama”, “Half A Fool”, “As Long As they Buying It”, “Speed On”, “Practice”, and “Don’t Cry”…..
This trailer for the “Music Regulators” doc looks promising…Shout out to MAGIC MIKE & THE GHETTO STYLE DJ’S for inspiring me in many ways coming up…
CHECK IN DUKE !!!
“A closer look at the art of down south DJ’ing with the Jam Pony Express DJs, Dem Damn Dogs, DJ Chipman, The Sugarhill Djs with Dj Uncle Al & more ! For more info Rayloddd@yahoo.com This project will be released Feb 2019”.
Like I said in the last post, it appears as if cats are hitting the ground running in the first quarter of 2019…For example AGALLAH (Who has increased his output the last few years) dropped the impressive “Rugby Marathon” a few days ago…
2019 is barely under way and it appears as if we are going to get hit with a barrage of fresh joints EARLY…ULL BX rhymer LOS LAUREN comes to the table with all types of Polo allegiance on “Closet Full Of Fresh Lo”…I’m digging this shit, and whoever did the beat (It’s not credited) should get a pat on the back for keeping it raw!!
